My tips: Packing & Travel Essentials Giveaway!

April 9, 2013
This past Spring Break I traveled to Minnesota(Cold weather) to visit my Father(Dodi) who got a successful liver transplant at the Mayo Clinic!!! And during this same trip I also traveled to Palm Beach(Warm Weather) for the end of Passover with my Mom(DJ Norma)! Packing for me is an art form. I always create a special packing list with little square boxes so I can check off everything in an organized manner.

Here are some of My Tips to pack for both Cold and Warm Weather within the same trip:
1) Make sure your outfits are interchangeable.
2) I see it as a simple equation. It starts with a graphic tee and then layer around it.
3) Denim always works in both climates both in bottoms and in a jacket or a vest.
4) Printed bottoms can brighten both weather locations and easy to layer a skirt with some cute tights in the cold weather.
5) Choose shoes that are easy to pack and wear on the plane but also can work for casual into evening looks.
6) Snag that perfect "black and white" spring blazer which works in both locations.

Where to buy these items if you are liking what you see :)
a. Jean Jacket -Aeropostale
b. Blacker -Urban Outfitters sold out but similar version here
c. Skirt- J. Mendel
d. Denim - Hudson(denim color) and Club Monaco(waxed black)
e. Shoes- Carlo Pazolini flats version here with black peep toes
f. Wedge Sneaker -GoJane.com
g. Grapic Tee- Boy Meets Girl® Alice Tee
 

Also I always put my beauty products at the very top of my bag! My latest obsession is this Babyliss Pro travel hair straighter. It's perfect to take on trips especially with the snazzy amazing leopard case! So in honor of these packing tips I'm giving away a Boy Meets Girl® Alice Tee, a Babyliss Pro leopard travel hair straighter and a Conair MiniPRO® Tourmaline Ceramic Styler! The giveaway will start now and go until this Friday 4/12. Winner will be announced on Monday 4/15! Good luck!
